Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

The apartment is located in Trastevere. It’s perfect for 2 or 4 people and is located in a building, built in the 1898. Restructured keeping in mind the original characteristics, with the wonderful arch built with old bricks and the typical floor with “cementine hexagonal”. We have added new material as resin, use to model the functional bathroom and the iron to mould the kitchen area.

The apartment is located in a quiet little street, very close to S.Callisto Square, 50 meters from S.Maria Tratevere Church, one of the more important in Rome and one of the older in the world.Santa Maria in Trastevere is situated in the bottom of its beautiful homonymous square, in the centre and in the heart of this populated quarter, very near to Pantheon,Isola Tiberina, Fonatana di Trevi,Gianicolo with panoramic view of Roma, Piazza Navona, Bocca della Verità,San Pietro, S.Maria in Cosmedin, Campo dei Fiori, Fori imperiali, mercati traianei (Colonna Traiana), Largo Argentina, Musei Vaticani, Colosseo

Its construction was begun by the pope San Callisto I (217-222) and accomplished by the pope San Giulio I (337-352) then it was rebuilt by the pope Innocent II, Gregorio Papareschi (1130-1143).Afterwards the pope Clement XI (1702) and the pope Pious IX (1870)had intervented without undergoing substantial alterations.

According to the tradition the same day when Jesus was born in Bethlehem 'a source of oil' gushed in the square that announced the Messiah and in this magic point, still indicated by a little round stone near the altar the church was realized which was also called Santa Maria Fons Olei.In the center of the square there is a fountain which existed from Augustus time.

In 1500 Bramante rebuilt it and moved it to the front of the church but Bernini in 1660 remade it putting back to its place where it stands now. The renaissance scenographic aspect of the fountain is in contrast with the ensemble of the quarter which glamour is in the 'poor'architecture of its houses and the byrinth of the plebeian streets which surround the square

Great apartment and location

  • 4 of 5

We loved Trastevere and this apartment! It was really nice staying away from most the tourists and being among locals. My wife and I stayed for three nights and walked everywhere. It was our first trip to Rome and we would go back and stay in Francesca's apt for sure. We wished we stayed longer. Very close, I means steps, to some really good restaurants, and the piazza. The apt was roomy, clean, and quite with windows on two sides which allowed a nice breeze to pass through. The living room looked out on a typical Trastevere cobblestone street with one of Rome's always running water fountains right outside the door. The bedroom looked out on an interior courtyard. I would give this a "excellent" rating based on the overall value an experience if the shower had worked properly - the drain was clogged and the shower head sprayed all over the bathroom, so we had to do quick military showers before the place flooded. Not a big deal except the shower was really cool, as you can see in the pictures, and would have like to enjoy it more.

Charming, Great Price, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Trastevere is Rome's best neighborhood in my opinion, and this apartment is located on a charming cobblestone street close to the tram that quickly takes you over the river close to the main tourist spots. We shopped at the local farmers market and made a delicious breakfast every morning in the well equipped kitchen. Santa Maria Basilica in Trastevere is beautiful and the piazza is a nice place to check out the local scene. The wireless internet worked great but it took about 2 hours for our phones to connect. The arranged ride to and from the airport was a better deal than a taxi and was completely reliable.
